True, but I did do a few tweaks to the core. So it's a tiny bit faster but only as much as possible without altering browserserver.
Please don't spread misinformation about my app.

Anyway, I've been a bit to quiet, especially because I was bummed by the fact that the Enyo 2 rewrite was doomed. But I hope to start development again in the next few days, at least on the current Enyo 1 version. A few things like Macaw sharing, for example, are waiting to be implemented! Isis Web is not dead yet!

Thank you for your answer.
See my previous post. But I'm sorry I cannot make it any faster than a few core tweaks as I can't alter BrowserServer. And it wouldn't make much sense to tweak BrowserServer because the only thing that's going to speed up Isis and the stock browser is a new WebKit, which dkirker is working on.

Thank you! I wasn't able to get version 3.5.0 to install via Preware update either but I ended up downloading the 3.5.0 IPK to my Dropbox account and then downloading the IPK to my Touchpad and installing it via Preware. Works great, thanks!

Should I just add the old Google search back and deal with two Google's on just type? Imagine my surprise when searching in Isis yielded Wikipedia results until I figured out why.

I wonder if you've had a chance to take a look at this? I reset my touchpad and forgot all about it. Then I readded the search to have suggestions and disabled the default Google search embedded in webOS. Opened Isis and did a search...which took me to wikipedia. That's when I remembered this! For the time being I reenabled the old Google search (it's just annoying to my OCD to have two Google searches in Just Type).

I have looked into the issue but the stock browser suffers from the same and it seems like it's something I can't fix.

I had a hard time thinking about the future of Isis Web but I've finally decided to discontinue it for now. It's clear that most of webOS Nation is hyping over webOS TV and I can't share that feeling: webOS TV is *not* the webOS I came to know and love.

So for now Isis is discontinued. Of course, the source will remain on my GitHub so feel free to compile it, fork it, whatever you wanna do with it as far as the license permits it. And the download links to the latest stable version (and in Preware) will also stay up; I won't take them down.

Thank you all for the wonderful time I had before webOS TV kicked in. I couldn't have made Isis Web without your help and dedication and maybe we'll see each other again in the future, when our familiar webOS returns.
